How to fix Twitch Error source code 0

- Use the Google Chrome web browser
- Update the Chrome web browser
- Ensure Chromecast and all devices are connected to the same network
- Restart the Chromecast device
1] Use the Google Chrome web browser
From our understanding, the Chrome web browser is best for casting via Chromecast. Yes, the likes of Microsoft Edge support Chromecast and it works quite well, but since the technology was created by Google, one can assume it would work best with the company’s own web browser.
Google Chrome is freely available via the official website. It is not too different from Edge, so there shouldn’t be a steep learning curve for those who haven’t used it before.
2] Update the Chrome web browser
For those who are facing the issue while using Chrome, we suggest updating the browser to the latest version.
- Open the Chrome web browser.
- Click on the More button, the one with the three dots.
- Hover the mouse cursor over Help.
- Select About Chrome.
- From the newly opened page, click on Update Google Chrome.
Wait a few seconds for the browser to be updated to the newest version. You may be required to restart to fully get things up and running.
3] Ensure Chromecast and all devices are connected to the same network
If your Chromecast and devices are not connected to the same network, then chances are you will face problems such as Error source code 0. So, please go ahead and connect your computer to the correct network.
- Do this by clicking on the Wi-Fi icon located on your Taskbar.
- Select the name of the Wi-Fi, then connect to it.
- Open the Google Home app.
- Click the Settings icon.
- Under the General settings are, click on the same Wi-Fi.
- Connect to it right away.
By doing this, Chromecast should cast better to all devices, and as such, your Twitch stream will likely have superior performance going forward.
4] Restart the Chromecast device
If everything above fails, then you will now want to restart your Chromecast device. All you have to do is unplug it from the power source, plug it back in, and that’s it, you’re done. You can now check to see if the error code is still popping up and preventing a smooth stream on Twitch.
